Overall Satisfaction with AWS Elastic Beanstalk

We use it for many of our clients. AWS Elastic Beanstalk provides a simple way to deploy, maintain and analyze our APIs.
  • Easy to use.
  • Extremely configurable.
  • Deployment hooks could be a little more straight forward and easier to understand.
  • Decreases the amount of time spent by engineers deploying and maintaining the applications.
  • Allows for having multiple environments for the same application (i.e. development, testing, production).
Once you've familiarized yourself with the system (which isn't too hard) it is very simple to use.
I've had to use AWS support for other services (CloudFront) and was directed to the Elastic Beanstalk support at first. They were able to answer a ton of my questions and walk me through how to use EB to resolve some of the issues.
I use both EB and Lambda for different use cases. I normally use AWS Lambda for my smaller software needs.
AWS Elastic Beanstalk is well suited for web applications and application APIs.
